Baking with whole food sprouted grain, seed, bean and nut flours
Grains, seeds, nuts and beans
One thing that grains, nuts, seeds and beans have in common is a seed coating. Plants like all living things have special qualities that help them survive long enough to reproduce. Seed coats evolved to sprout and grow even after going through the gut of a hungry, munching creature. Natural compounds in the seed coat like gluten, lectins, enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid guard the outside, while locking in important nutrients for future plant growth. So it’s no surprise that these compounds, handy as they are for plant survival, also prevent us from digesting the stored nutrients within, and may even be harmful if ingested in large amounts.
Tout’ n the Sprout ‘n
Sprouting initiates a chemical change that unlocks nutrients like iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, manganese and proteins to name a few. For thousands of years, humans have counted on grains and seeds for a large part of their diet, using processes like soaking, sprouting and fermenting to reduce harmful elements and gain better nutrition. But today, modern conveniences and commercial processing have almost eliminated these practices from our food production. Meanwhile, modern science confirms the wisdom of older methods, suggesting that the disappearance of soaking and other practices might be a cause of modern micronutrient deficiencies.
Blue Mountain Organics carefully follows recommended soaking and sprouting processes to maximize the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in grains, beans, nuts, and seeds yielding super-flavorful, and easy-to-digest foods. Our dehydrating technique locks freshness and nutrition into those grains, beans, nuts, and seeds, bringing intense flavor and desirable texture. Plus, we stone-grind our flours producing flours bursting with fantastic taste and vitality.
